LAND WITHOUT GOD

72 Views

LAND WITHOUT GOD examines the legacy of Institutional abuse by the Irish Church and State over the last century. The story follows writer, Gerard Mannix Flynn, together with generations of his family who for the first time, speak openly together about their childhood traumatic experience of being removed from the family home and being incarcerated in children’s homes and industrial institutions run by religious catholic orders. Here the children worked the land from dawn until dusk, ill-clothed, half-starved day in day out. The regime was merciless.

It focuses on the impact that violence had and is still having on them and their class. Why did this happen? How does one exit the trauma buried deep in the bones of generations? Is it possible to walk away free? And will they let you?

Gerard Mannix Flynn and Maedhbh McMahon produce for Farcry Productions, with financing by Screen Ireland
